Assisting In Lessons
This term as the girls work towards various exams I am lucky to be assisted in teaching theory for dance by Ishani Patel, and by Sreeya Daruri who will be assisting in teaching Carnatic Vocal for dance.
Ishani is a student of Sri Guru Prakash Yadagudde at the Bhavan, London and completed her diploma in Bharatanatyam in July 2018, she continues her training with Guruji in post diploma.
Sreeya is a student of Bharatanatyam at Satyam Dance and recently attained a distinction in her Grade 1 dance. She is also a senior student in Carnatic Vocal and has been taught by her father vocalist Sri Sampath Acharya Daruri and has attained Grade 6 in vocal music.
As part of the ISTD syllabus the students are required to have a knowledge of music and also present a folder with dance theory – so it is a great help having the girls to assist from time to time in between their GSCE studies.
